Just to save you the time... it's a streak of 18, not that I am counting, really - I am keeping track of the questions/answers/winners in an Excel database and I have it set-up to automatically count everyone's wins. Anyway, thanks again for the win Lee. At this point it isnt about the points, I'm simply playing for the fun of it now. In fact, like I mentioned earlier, I have already come up with a plan to hand a majority of the points back out. And I anticipate that it will only add to the KatKwiz/KatKwery experience, not take from it. Anyway, I dont want to seem ungrateful - thank you very much for all my points Lee. I owe probably 75% of my bank to you and the members who have donated to you!
Honestly, I didnt think that I would win yesterday's Kwery, but thank you. Let's see if I have it in my today...
When I went to the KatKwiz today it was simply to be prepared for the Kwery. I didnt sign on until late in the afternoon so I was totally surprised that it was an on-going Kwiz today. It really offered a lot of members the opportunity to rack up some points.
Then when I started checking on all the keywords, I got worried, when I seen how many there starting to be. Actually, when I gave my first answer, I was well aware of the sub-forums, but I didnt want to give that answer right away. I thought that once someone seen my answer, they would realize where to look and go there. But when no one did, I submitted my second answer after two and a half hours passed and the contest was almost over. I have clicked on view source before, and correct me if I am wrong, I believe we have gone over this before in a Kwiz. I remember looking up meta tags before, and I think the Kwiz is where I learned it from to begin with. Anyway, if you use FireFox it is even easier to look up keywords than if you use IE. You can right-click on the page and select "View Page Info" and it will list all of the keywords for you.
I have an online blog/journal that I keep regarding Joshua's health to keep friends and family updated on his progress. Well the journal started out as a simple pre-made page. All I had to do was type in my message, just like an email or something. But then, I wanted more out of it, so I wandered over to a MySpace page so I could add more pictures and music, with the coaxing of my kids. I learned a little about HTML and CSS codes while I was there, but quickly go border with their format and transferred his whole journal from CaringBridge over to Google's Blogger. There I really started to learn about codes, and tags, etc.
It's kinda of funny, I remember when I got my first computer, my middle daughter who is now 13, was hmmm... 3 at the time, so about ten years ago. Anyway, I didnt know the difference between browsers then. In fact, I very first used AOL, so I was even more clueless. My point is, since then, my knowledge on the compute rhas come a LONG way. I am aware of using quotes when I do a search if I want to narrow my results down, or using the words "and" or "or". In fact I think I first learned about those tips from shopping on Ebay!
As for the last question - is that rhetorical or what?
Sorry guys, really I am not trying to hog up all the points. I really am just trying to play along side the rest of you all. I really enjoy the contests on here. Sometimes the KatKwery is the only reason I come to TCS in a day.
Anyway, I have plans on Paying It Forward. These contests arent about winning points for me, but I enjoy the interactions with everyone!
Guess that's it for now. Thanks again Lee - and to all his benefactors. I really do appreciate the chance to just play!
